Tauranga Bay Community Association
Date started: Dune restoration was started in 2007
Purpose of group: A sub-committee of the Tauranga Bay Community Association was formed to work on CoastCare activities and protection of nesting dotterels.
About the group: In 2007 funding was received from Far North District Council to place bollards to keep vehicles away from the beach frontage. Reshaping and planting of spinifex and pingao was then undertaken to help restore the dunes. The group has erected fencing and signage to protect the New Zealand dotterel nesting sites on the sand spit. They also undertake pest control to further protect the wildlife.
